The bug will save you from having to pay full price for each app

A bug has allowed Mac users' trial versions of certain software to be updated to the new versions for free. 

According to 9 to 5 Mac, a Mac App Store bug is allowing trial software versions of iWork and Aperture to be updated for free. More specifically, the Mac App Store -- which identifies boxed versions of software -- is detecting trial versions as full purchased copies as well.

So if you've never purchased the full iWork suite or Aperture program, this bug will recognize your trial version as the real deal and save you from having to pay full price for each app.

Apparently the Mac App Store can't tell the difference because the trial versions of old iWork apps are identical to the retail copies, and since the apps use the same identifier (whether activated or not), the Mac App Store can't determine if the trial has been activated.
